 FC United travel to Norton & Stockton Ancients in the third qualifying round of the FA Cup after a Glynn Hurst double saw them overcome Gainsborough Trinity 2-1.

The former Bury and Stockport striker helped the Rebels come from behind to beat the Blue Square North side at Gigg Lane.

They will now take on Ancients, sixth in Division One of the Northern League, two levels below FC, on Saturday, October 9.

Karl Marginson’s men, who were back in league action against Buxton last night, face Mickleover Sports in Derbyshire on Saturday before a home game at Stalybridge’s Bower Fold against Ossett Town on Wednesday.
